Jamaica likes the substitute teacher, Mrs. Duval, right away. So when there's a spelling test, of course she wants to please her by spelling all the words right. But this time something goes wrong and Jamaica has to make an important decision. Full color.
K-Gr 2-Jamaica and her classmates have a substitute teacher for the week. Mrs. Duval is warm, encouraging, and fun, and the children are eager to please her. When it's time for the spelling test, Jamaica realizes that she's forgotten to study and copies from a friend. Troubled, she confesses to Mrs. Duval, who reassures her that she doesn't have to be perfect to be special in her class. The full-color artwork depicts a modern classroom with a diverse student body. O'Brien focuses her attention and detail on the two main characters, bringing them visually to the front of the illustrations. A delightful story with a gentle message.-Alice DiNizo, Plainfield Public Schools, NJ Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
